About Zarina
Joined September 2015
My name is Zarina and I am a Premium member at Wealthy Affiliate community since September 2015 (and I am not going anywhere).

Wealthy Affiliate truly helped maximize my potential and explicitly taught me what I can do with my skills and knowledge (hint: build profitable websites with the focus on HELPING people). The training structure here delivers results.

The best part is that ANYONE can sign-up and test-drive an ENTIRE platform for FREE!

I like sharing my knowledge and experience and that's why most of my websites contain a lot of reviews and/or how-to posts.

Now, a bit more about me.

I live in Toronto, Canada but I absolutely love travelling (and meeting new people).

During university years, I had the chance to study abroad and these experiences made me realize what I love and what I want to do.

It is exactly for the purpose of being mobile that I've made a decision in 2015 to become a freelancer, and now I'm embarking on a bigger step of having an on-line business, earning more and being useful with my knowledge to the on-line world :)

I am super grateful to Kyle & Carson for building such a wonderful community, which provides the training, tools, and support necessary to build a successful business online.

Like you, I was a complete newbie myself, and I can assure you that this is by far the best place available on the Internet that gives its members PROPER GUIDANCE.

In September 2015, I created a free membership account and two days later I decided to become a Premium member to have access to everything Wealthy Affiliate has to offer. And as you can see, I am still here!

My pleasure to meet all WA members and I wish you best of luck on your online journey! :)

thanks Zarina,
I like it so far and still learning. Good to know you have made a comfortable living it appears but the wanting to see once I get my website up and running. But I'm confused with the affiliate part of the system I see the affiliate link on the plate form but I don't have all the skills learned yet.

I am not yet making full-time earnings but am patient. Knowing that I am on the right path helps me not get frustrated and stay focused instead.

My best advice to you is to follow the training (actually a few times helps, I revisit certain lessons over and over again).

Good luck on your online journey Joseph!

He Zarina,
I am glad you enjoying it, do you think it takes a long time to make a full time living on here, do you mind me asking how long it took you, if you are earning a full time living and if you have access to travel now...
Reply
Zarina Premium
Hi, no I am not making a full time living yet, started in late 2015, was slacking off a lot, had surgeries, so too much stuff got in the way (including laziness). Had commissions flowing in from WA but now heavily focusing on Amazon website, which I started in November 2017. The last posts show my progress. Best advice for you is to follow the training and apply your knowledge in practice.

Thanks so much hun, sorry to hear about the surgeries, hope you ok, where in Canada are you from, I have a cousin names Zarina Mia in Toronto. I see a lot of people have joined Amazon is it worth it, can anyone make a full time income from it, I have been toying with the idea for 3 years now, but dilly dallying...I am 57 and a single mother, my 17 year old has to attend university in 2 years time and I am worried...Thank you so much ...may you succeed in all your endeavours, it does sound like it takes a long time to make a fair amount of money...take care and good luck my girl

I am also from Toronto but haven't met too many people with my name. Only those who are from my hometown, which is like one girl.

If you don't mind, I will add a link about Amazon and why it works: https://kasottyblog.com/can-you-make-money-selling-on-amazon

And yes, a LOT of people make decent money with it. I just started but already seeing more success than with my previous sites. Consider checking out Dylan's blog posts @dylanrieger, but after you complete the training here at WA.

Good luck to you!

Hey Zarina,
Thank you, ofcourse I don't mind, in fact , I am grateful, yes I will begin with WA, as I can only do one set of training at a time. At a later stage I will come back to this and take it from there thank you...TO OUR SUCCESS, bye for now

Thanks for explaining that for me. I really wasn't sure how they arrived at our rankings. I'm learning some things by being active with the members, but the drawback is I have less time for training and web site building. It's all good stuff when you want to learn, right?
Reply
Zarina Premium
My best advice is to focus on your trying and your website (instead of blogging here every day).

It's easy to get distracted here with all the success stories, messages, questions from people, live chat...

So keep your focus on what really matters: training and your website.

Good luck, Richard!

One recommendation for you, think of being a travel writer as well as what else you're doing. There are places that will pay for your trips once you're established. It's always nice to have someone else pay for your trip. May you have continued good fortune and prosperity.

Hey Zarina!
What kind of financial goals did you set when you first signed up? When were you able to meet some or all of those goals?

Also do you think having the premium membership was a big contributor in seeing growth in your online platform?

Thanks for sharing your story!

Frankly, I don't remember what were my goals when I started, it was back in 2015. But I certainly did learn and grow online thanks to WA. My advice is to test-drive the premium membership for $19 and see if it suits you.

Hey Zarina,

awesome to connect! Even though you are not fully Canadian, still awesome that you are living in Canada currently. Lots of awesome people are either from there or living there.

I am living in the high North (similarly high as Canada in a way), some country called Norway. I am not originally from there either haha.

I joined WA in 2016 and am also not planning to go anywhere else.

All the best to you and your websites!

Glad to connect too!

Hi Zarina, thank you for following me. I really envy your ability to learn different languages.

Time will tell. Thanks again, and good luck in all your pursuits!

And you are right, don't go anywhere, Wealthy Affiliates is the place to be. I've had to learn that the hard way, every time I decided to explore the net for some great opportunity to make quick cash, the advertisers always brings me back to Wealthy Affiliates!

Hello Zarina. I can imagine that of the four languages you can work with English is still the hardest to truly master. If it wasn't for Spell Checkers most of us native English writers would be in deep trouble. Have you noticed how many words from other languages are used by the vocabulary of English? Websters has words in it that come from languages that don't seem to be around anymore. Thanks for the follow.
Reply
Zarina Premium
My mom always made me pay attention to spelling and grammar and, in terms of that, I am doing pretty great.
I don't necessarily think it's taken from another language, but do notice similarities (just won't think in which language it was originally taken from, unless it's French b/c it's pretty easy to guess that the word is French not English - If you know what I mean).

Passion for languages how did you learn? by...

If, that is yr passion you will have a great advantage of most people here! One website and 4 languages.

Hi Zarina,

This goes to show great people think alike.

I am glad you made the choice of adding me into your network.

Being a small country, Singapore (to be precise), has not had a lot to tell but with the fast economy, we definitely stay ahead of the curve and made many great successes throughiut the history when it first got independence from Malaysia since 1965.

We have crossed the mark of Jubilee and there are time that we have to give up but we manage to get up again. This show the strong DNA as a Singaporean.

The place we stay like many more small countries, shows a lot of grace as we have different ethnic group of people in this country that live together for the past 52-years.

Most people that I come across from overseas especially from the UK, the most valid reason why they choose to stay and live in Singapore is because of the stability of security and infrastructure that continue to deliver its performance that produces quality life.

Hope to share more again in the near future since you have added me into your network.

John.

Hi Zarina, Thanks for the follow. I love languages as well and that is one thing I can say I am truly good at. I've spent years traveling around the world working and living in other countries. It was the best experience ever. I'm working to getting back into the traveling part. I found that even if you live in a beautiful place there's no better feeling than locking the front door of your home and disappearing for awhile somewhere.

I just noticed a title of one of your blogs that may help me. That would be a creative block. Thank you. All the best! Mike

I have done a bit on WA but am still liquidating my business which is not a very pleasant exercise but I get a lot of energy as soon as I sign-in on WA and get going. I should be full time soon and then I can take advantage of some of your training guides. I wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and a wonderful day today.

Hi, may I ask you some questions? Now that you are a member for over 2 years and been managing your site....have you started making any real income?

I guess what I am getting at (not to pry) is that this whole affiliate marketing thing takes much, much longer than I thought it would.

I have been a member for about 15 months and been working my bum off to manage my sites and write good content. I follow the WA training by the book.
But, my traffic and revenue sucks! I thought I would have a much higher income by now, but its just taking so long.,

Then, I got to doing some research and looking at other WA members (Premium). It seems that the successful members who are still here are successful only after working their sites for like 5+ years on average. Everyone who makes a decent monthly income from affiliate marketing ($3,000+ a month) it took them many many years to reach this level of income.

Is that correct in that it simply takes years and years to earn a high enough traffic and google rank to make that kind of revenue unless you are super, super lucky?

Hi Matty,

What do you define as real income? I am making a few bucks here and there, but what I really wanted is a breakthrough, earning around $1-2k/month of pure passive income. (Which I didn't start yet).

Now, I do know that it takes at least 6 months to 1 year to start making any money but I am about to say something that will make you very happy - apparently it's possible to make real income if you follow a particular strategy. I learned it last month and I started to implement it (already made some sales even though my website is like a month old).

I learned it from Dylan's post and I am sure you will find it useful too: His recent results for the 3rd website: I hope this helps :)

Hi Matty,

Thanks for your input here!

What you express is true and not true!

Super lucky do not exist!

WA teach a lot of things

"I follow the WA training by the book.
But, my traffic and revenue sucks! I thought I would have a much higher income by now, but its just taking so long."

The training here is awesome!

To achieve yr target will not take 5+ years with a strategy that will outperform your competition.

Hi Zarina, thank you for the follow. Kudos to you on the languages. I have a smattering of French left over from growing up in Canada, but now when I try for a French word, I usually end up with a Thai word. Living in Thailand has almost obliterated my French vocabulary. I know it is still in there somewhere. Anyway, good for you with the WA accomplishments and the university education. Keep up the hard work.

Hello Zarina, I would like to thank you for allowing me to be a part of your network. I have returned the favor. I'm new here but I have already found out just how wonderful this program and this community are. I look forward to learning from reading your posts and your training. I'm a pretty old dog trying to learn new tricks. With your help and the help of the others here at WA, I just may learn a new trick or two. Hope you have a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Hello Zarina,
thank you for such an encouraging and welcoming introduction and thanks for the follow, I've followed you back. I am sure I will be able to learn a lot from you, so I'm keeping an eye out for you posts :-) My progress through the training is slow but steady, wish I could do more every day but with small children family life is very busy, so I am bevaering away a little bit every evening. The training is amazing! All the best to you!

HI Zarina,

Wow, speaking 4 different languages is really impressive and I am guessing is a great asset to your online business.

Very nice profile picture of you on the Bridge overlooking the river, is that shot taken in Kyle&Carson; country, Canada?

I thank you for following me and I wish you the very best in all aspects of life.

It is great meeting you and c u along the way through our journey in WA.

Hey Brad,

Still haven't figured out how to use languages in my online business - I have a passion for it but I definitely don't feel like writing about it - I don't even know how much content I can write. I will think about it - but I enjoy learning so for now ill focus on that.

As for the pic - actually it was taken in Geneva, but myself I am from Toronto.

Thanks!

Hi Zarina! Thanks for following me. You have great energy! Could you tell me why you think that your Internet business is going nowhere? I have just gotten started myself, so it would be helpful to know. There are some very successful people in the online business, such as

https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/leoemery

Perhaps you could check out his profile and see what he does to make it happen? You know what they say? If you want to be successful, look around for those who are successful and emulate them . . . and it will work for you too!

I'll get to reading your posts.

Peace - William

Zarina, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Zarina.

Good afternoon Zarina,

With every new language, one learns a whole new world opens. You can read books without the translated version, like that being able to understand the writer much better. I left Holland at the age of 15 to go and study languages in various European countries, now looking back on all these years I am very grateful my parents enabled me to have this kind of education.
Please have a look at my post on the world library and my last one on the coming documentary, I think you will find it interesting.
Thank you for the follow and good luck,

Regards, Taetske

Hey Zarina! Just saw some of your blog posts and some of the great results you've been seeing in the SERPs! Keep at it and eventually you'll get there. One thing I've learned is that if you make every article the best it can be (i.e. well-researched, lots of great content) then you will be maximizing your possible rankings in Google. I aim for AT LEAST 1500 words of content these days, ideally more.

Also great to see a fellow Torontonian on here! I'm relatively new to the city but loving it so far :)

Hey Joseph!!

I am so surprised our paths didn't cross before here, it says that you've been at WA since 2010!!!

Thank you for your kind words and your support!! It means a lot, given that I still consider myself a newbie.

I actually live in Newmarket now but I would love to get together with you for a cup of coffee :) (Though this month lots of stuff going on but starting next month, should be good). I don't know anyone from WA who lives here and it would be awesome to connect :)

Cheers,

Hi Zarina!

Sure thing! It would actually be pretty cool to connect with someone from WA out there in the real world :) Just drop me a message anytime you're thinking of coming into the city. I know probably TOO many coffee shops here (I tend to hang out at them a lot haha).

And yea, I joined in 2010 and picked up as much as I could from the training. Then I got busy with my own websites and IM and I was on hiatus from WA for quite a while. But I'm back now and eager to engage a bit more with the community here. WA is a pretty cool place!

Hello Zarina. Thanks for following me back. Well, a couple of things in common, I used my languages skills here in Toronto and now retired from being a Court and Immigration Interpreter/Translator. I still work, mostly volunteering with the Spanish community and have fairly good knowledge of Italian, Portuguese and French comprehension. I enjoy this eCommerce business ... keeps me busy.

Nice to meet you here Zarina. Thank you for your follow back. How are you doing after one and halve years with WA? Wonder what is your background? From your name and the language you chose to learn I assume that you have some ancestral connections with Russia? But of course I can be wrong...

Hello fellow Canadian! Thanks for the follow. I am following back.

Your profile gave me a bit of a laugh because aside from speaking English and French, I also studied Russian and Spanish in CEGEP.... I've lost all but the most basic words and phrases unfortunately, but I love languages. I'm currently working a bit on Irish, but rather casually, as WA and home life fill most of my free time.

Hi, Craig!

I'm originally from Montreal, but we moved a few years ago to Gatineau because my wife took a job at the Ottawa hospital.

Yes, languages are awesome. I have always loved them and always wanted to work with the written word, which I am hoping WA will allow me to do!

I noticed that you are here since last year and yet don't have any tutorials. WA tutorials are a great way to make your first money if you didn't know this, more info here: I have great associations with Gatineau - never been there but met two girls from Gatineau during my Spanish program in Mexico, and they are awesome :)

Are you ever in Toronto?

I've been hesitant to do tutorials simply because I figure I ask have so much still to learn. That and the fact that almost everything has already been covered dozens of times.

Hi Kasotty, I'm Warren... I'm very new to all of this but, I've noticed that you're ranked 65 (impressive). Therefore, it's a probability that, you're a very busy young lady with a repetitious to do list I presume, with very little time to do anything else... So, I was inquiring about (if it's probable) your aid & assist in your step-by-step training in lamens terms, until I'm advanced or able enough to stand alone. As if, I was a child crawling before I could learn to walk. Meaning, with your help It'll be possible for me to move-up in the ranks & succeed at being successful in all my endeavors... To make a long story short, will you help me? "AS A MAN THINK SO IS HE"!
